Innovative ground-level traffic lights to prevent pedestrian accidents! 8/8/2016 • David Pafford
Australian company Büro North has come up with an interesting project of traffic lights, located right on the ground. It is especially topical for Pokemon GO fans, as well as for other active smartphone users.
There are a lot of people who keep looking at their mobile devices while walking along the streets. This may lead to various car accidents when pedestrians do not pay attention to the traffic lights, and as a result, get serious injuries or even die.
The company has already designed the so-called Smart Tactile Paving system which would light up in red or green to tell face-down mobile device users when it’s safe to cross the road.
The idea seems really great since it may help save thousands of lives.
